Dreaming of a pink and white christmas...

Good Morning lovely bloggers, I do hope you are all well and avoiding all the bugs and sniffles that are doing the rounds, we are getting more than our fair share in this house I can tell you!
Im missing my oldest this week as she is away doing work experience through school, shes helping out at a cattery and dog boarding kennels and  staying at her best friends house as its just 2 minutes from the cattery, but she will be home tomorrow. Goodness knows why she picked this as she hopes to go to art college! I think its more self indulgance as she loves animals and would love a cat, but one dog is more than enough.
Anyway onto a card that I have to share with you, I made this for the current challenge over at magnolia down under, which is 'pink, white and gold' which is just a gorgeous combo.
Ive used my Tim Holtz snow flurries die again on the edges as I just adore the look it gives the card. I had to dig deep in my craft cupboard for gold glitter though, Im strictly a crystal stickles girl but I remembered buying some little pots of fine glitter a couple of year ago but never used it. As you see I found it, I used a quickie glue pen to edge the snow flakes and sprinkled glitter on. Im still finding glitter this morning lol!!

Hope you like it?
